Sound Design &

Music Consultation


Since my early twenties, I have been composing, performing, recording, and engineering soundtracks and sound design for dance, theater, movies and art installations.


I play a large variety of ancient, classical, and modern instruments. I created my own samples’ library and 

when needed, I combine them with the most advanced sound banks and computer processing.


I love working with visual media as my music is primarily narrative and my instruments are amazing storytellers. I have been lucky to work with incredibly gifted choreographers, theater directors, and filmmakers.

Laura uses music as meaningful entertainment,

as a tool for healing, a boost for intuition,

a facilitator for creativity,

a way to harmonize a conversation,

as guidance for group retreats,

as medicine for inner transformation,

as a medium to connect to the intelligence of the body...

Using Acoustic Music & Cutting Edge Technology for Immersive & Transformative Experiences

Chambers of AWE ~ Acoustic Waves Emergence Using Music & Technology for Immersive & Transformative Experiences ​ Chambers of AWE (Acoustic Waves Emergence) are deep, immersive sound experiences created with ancient and modern acoustic instruments, augmented by cutting edge technology. Conceived and performed by Laura Inserra, they are a bridge between ancient technology (wisdom traditions and music) and modern technology (high tech and science). ​ Chambers of AWE combine recorded ambisonic sound architectures and live performances. Using the most advanced technology, Laura amplifies the instruments’ impact by entering the sound, augmenting it, and yet maintaining the integrity of the original source and its harmonics. ​ At the core of the project are sound sources made by rare acoustic instruments. Those sounds create immersive environments with a vast spectrum of frequencies which facilitate powerful transformational experiences. In these settings body and mind merge with the sound and shift to deeper Inner Landscapes Journeys, traveling beyond the field of cognitive perceptions. ​ It was premiered in 2018 in Prague during a large cryptocurrency conference, when Laura transformed for four days a forum hall into a decompression room, creating a sound and lighting reactive installation. Participants were entering an invisible but palpable 60 foot diameter sphere of sound created by an ambisonic system of 16 speakers and 4 subwoofers. Laura and her live set was in the center of the sphere with 8 mics, each one connected to 2 speakers, plus 2 mics connected to the whole sound system. This allowed her to map and create live sound architectures in addition to her pre-recorded tracks. The ongoing intertwined pre-recorded and live music created a striking immersive sound environment. In addition, she offered twice a day guided immersive sound experiences. ​ Visit the official website Staged world premiere at DevCon4 Oct. 30 - Nov. 2, 2018 ~ Prague Congress Center - Czech Republic ​ Devcon is the annual Ethereum conference for designers, developers, researchers and artists. The Ethereum Foundation hosts Devcon to educate and empower our community to build decentralized applications, and to bring Ethereum protocols, tools, and culture to the world.
